We had a fun filled Go Skateboarding Day 2012!
The festivities kicked off early with our regularly scheduled morning class at Friends International. We tried out a new hybrid game of skateboarding basketball which involved a lot of balance, maneuvering, hand-eye coordination and most importantly - teamwork.
While many kids were shredding, others were observing a special painting demonstration and workshop put on by TheSk8room. The mural depicted a native endangered species, the gentle giant known as the Asian Elephant pulling a tuk tuk on a nearby wall at the school.
The children were captivated watching the artistic process and were thrilled when they were asked to contribute their own colorful touches. The mural quickly came alive with beautiful butterflies, lush grasses, blooming flowers, fancy peacocks and of course depictions of skateboarders.
